Fat Boy Fundraiser

Starting May 10th we will be selling Fatboy Ice Cream Sandwiches and Fatboy Nut Sundaes for $25.00 a box. Each box contains 30 delicious Ice Cream treats. All proceeds will go to next years 9th grade trip.

This is a pre-sale fundraiser, which means you will need to collect the money up front.

All checks should be made payable to: MMA Jr. High

All order forms and money collected will need to be returned to the school no later than May 19th.

Orders will be ready for pick up May 26th the last day of school in the North Shore Parking lot beginning at 12:45 p.m. Once you pick up your order it will need to be delivered or placed in a freezer within 45 minutes. If you have a cooler to bring to help keep your ice cream cold it will extend your delivery time.

North Shore Pool Party

Things are really in motion at MMAjr! Hopefully you have all received your class schedules.  The new portable is in place, new teachers are settling in, and the lizards are returning to their yurt habitat.

At the North Shore Pool Party we have a fundraising opportunity!
Pool Party 2015 MMA 1 (1)

We will be selling root beer floats and t-shirts.  I need volunteers to help set up, clean up and people to run our ‘booth’ in 30 minute increments.  It’s a great spot to see everyone in attendance! Parents are welcome to help as well.  This volunteer time does qualify for the required service so take advantage!

Email Ms Emily to book a time that works best for you!  egoddard@mariamontessoriacademy.org
